With over 20 years in teaching, Rob Houben specialises in using technology within and personalising education and believes learning should start with building motivation, self-esteem, and becoming a social networker. He and his colleagues run Agora Schools without timetables, courses, or age groups. They teach students to manage their learning process, starting with a simple question: What do you want to make, do or learn?

In our chat, Rob and I discuss more about personalised learning and the different forms it takes and he shares how technology is embedded into his schools. With Rob’s experience working on the National Dutch Curriculum, we unpack the scalability of alternative, emerging pedagogies and how at a national level schools can progress.

Rob headlines EDUtech Europe 2022 happening on 5-6 October, at RAI Amsterdam. Join us to hear from Rob and many other exciting Keynotes, speakers and take this opportunity to experience and explore a diverse line-up of exhibitors, start-ups, and on-floor activities.
